NJ Child & Parenting Attorneys
Helping New Jersey clients through child and parenting issues
When a couple gets a divorce, spouses are not the only ones impacted by the change. When children are involved, the parents have a lot to consider. When a marriage ends, the family must address issues like child support and child custody. Courts will work to reduce the effect on the child’s life and decide on a support and custody structure that serves the interests of the child first. In some cases, after a final judgment, parents may wish to adjust support or custody through a request for modification. Parents may not agree with the court’s decision, but most often, a judge’s decision will have to be followed. If you are a couple who is considering divorce with children involved, you should consider all of these factors and how to best serve your children.

The process of divorce impacts the whole family. Whether through mediation or a court battle, there are certain issues that must be addressed which could shake the foundation of the family. Child custody is a difficult issue for parents to bear. Often times, child custody becomes a heated and emotional issue that leads families to contested divorces, evaluations, and escalating costs. Parents have worked to establish consistent and positive relationships with their children. The idea that they may have to see their children less and share that time with the other spouse can be difficult to accept. More
Parents in New Jersey are obligated to support their children. According to new legislation signed into law by Governor Chris Christie on January 19, 2016, child support will end at the age of 19. However, child support can extend beyond the 19th birthday, through college and beyond. More
When a divorce concludes and a judge passes down a Final Judgment of Divorce, all marital issues will be addressed. These issues generally include division of assets, alimony, child support, and child custody. Sometimes, circumstances have changed for one or both spouses. When that happens, it might be necessary for them to request a modification to adjust a variety of issues. A New Jersey judge cannot reasonably take into consideration the unforeseen variables of the future. They are willing to hear and decide on modifications for a number of legal matters. More
